Because it is clearly the most superior of the basic tastes.

Lamb Fat, rendered into Lamb Suet then grated into stuffing, then cooked.

It makes your Umami happy.

Apparently bacon tastes so good because it possesses six ingredient types of umami, which elicits an addictive neurochemical response. According to Gupta "the chain lards on bacon in particular" give foods a "high flavor profile" creating a "one-of-a-kind product that has no taste substitute."

Thank you umami, for making bacon so delicious.

I use a pinch of MSG every now and then.

Would use fish extract if the gf wasn't vegetarian. MSG is made from sea weed!

I only ever had those as either truffle oil or truffle extract or as a minor ingredient in mushroom soup or something, I'm still not sure what they actually taste like by themselves.
